Talk:Midlet basic lifecycle and states
This article gives a brief summary of the basic midlet lifecycle, and shows the different states a midlet can be in, as well as all the possible transitions between states that can occur. The diagram provided clearly shows this information to the reader. Another important piece of information to note in this article is that on some devices, calls to pauseApp() are not made by the system. It may be up to the programmer to programmatically pause the midlet when it is detected that it no longer has the focus (has moved to the background, for example when the user takes a call).
An understanding of the basic midlet lifecycle is important to any Java ME programmer, and as such this article provides useful information, albeit information that could easily be retrieved from other sources (such as the Java ME Developers Guide).
